Need to catch a mid-day break or a place to recuperate after the daily grind? Head down to Common Man Stan for a comfortable respite in the CBD. Decked out in minimalistic modern-chic interiors with a clean and inviting vibe, stepping into this cafe strips away your worries almost instantaneously.
The dishes at Common Man Stan isn’t complicated either: while their breakfast and lunch menus see the usual cafe selections, the dinner menu delves into a more gratifying lineup. If you didn’t know about Common Man Stan’s dinner offerings, here’s a sneak peek to let you in on the 411.
The Shining Starter: Tofu Sisig
Traditionally made with chopped up pork bits, crisp from the sizzling hot plate it’s served in, sisig is a popular pork-based dish from the Philippines. However, Common Man Stan serves Tofu Sisig instead. The fried tofu is perfect for soaking up all that tangy dressing, while the tortilla chips make for the best vessel to transport those tasty morsels of tofu into your mouth. Appetising and packed with flavour, we can’t think of a better way to kickstart a meal.
Magnificent Mains: Pork Belly Cha Shu & Herb Crusted Chicken Schnitzel
Once you’re done with your appetiser, say hello to the indulgent Pork Belly Cha Shu. Marvellously fatty (read: delicious) pork belly is cooked until it’s fork-tender and served with umami Tonkotsu sauce and a side of truffled kangkong . The flavours are robust and fulfilling, and the pumpkin puree helps to cut through the pork fat with its mellow sweetness.
Whether you’re packing an appetite or sharing a meal, the Herb Crusted Chicken Schnitzel is your go to. Crisp yet tender and overall satisfying, you can’t go wrong with this plate of comfort! The herbed crust help zhoosh up the cutlets, and a squirt of lemon brightens up the flavours too. To cleanse the palate, the celeriac & radish remoulade works wonders.
A Delightful Dessert: Churros with Caramel or Chocolate Sauce
Where good coffee is abundant, one does not get simply end a meal without ordering a plate of Churros. These golden twiglets are dusted with cinnamon sugar and served with a side of caramel or chocolate sauce. Pair that with a side of warm coffee and you’re all set for the night! Need a little pick me up? We recommend swapping the java for the CMCR Hot Chocolate with Grounded Pleasures Artisanal Chocolate (trust us on this one).
From fulfilling cafe fare in the day to generous dinner selections to end the night, you can always count on trusty ol’ Common Man Stan to bring you the best of both meals.
